Teams are assembling for the inaugural Canterbury Legal Walk, a 10km sponsored walk around Canterbury to raise money for the Kent Law Campaign.
The Canterbury Legal Walk offers a unique opportunity to explore both the city and Kent’s beautiful hill-top campus in the company of leading members of the legal profession on Saturday 13 June 2015.
Led by the UK’s Justice of The Supreme Court, The Right Hon the Lord Clarke of Stone-cum-Ebony, teams of students, staff, solicitors, Barristers and legal practitioners have already begun registering for the walk.
Walking with Lord Clarke, who is also patron of the Kent Law Campaign, will be Professor John Fitzpatrick, Director of Kent Law Clinic, Professor Richard de Friend, Chair of the Kent Law Campaign Board and Richard Honey, Barrister at Francis Taylor Building.
The walk is open to all and friends and families of students, staff and legal professionals are welcome to register either as individuals or teams. The walk will end with a celebration party on Senate Lawn overlooking Canterbury Cathedral.
Registration is free but participants are asked to pledge to raise as much money as possible for the Kent Law Campaign, a £5million fundraising project to build a new home for the Kent Law Clinic and for Kent Law School’s Mooting Programme.
The University of Kent will match each pound raised with another so if you raise £50 and it is eligible for Gift Aid, your gift will become £125.
